American Film Maker? Or America's Next Top Director? Whatever

So Steven Spielberg is joining the Fox television network to create a new reality tv show to find the next great filmmaker.

Spielberg, the Oscar-winning director behind "Saving Private Ryan" and "Schindler's List," will develop the new Fox show, "On the Lot," with Mark Burnett, the producer of such TV reality hits as "Survivor" and "The Apprentice."

The upcoming series, slated to air sometime in the 2006-07 broadcast season, will pit a group of aspiring filmmakers in competition for a Hollywood development deal on the lot of DreamWorks, the studio Spielberg co-founded.

DreamWorks was recently sold to Paramount Pictures, a division of Viacom Inc.

Fox reality programming chief Mike Darnell told Reuters that Spielberg would appear on the show but that the nature or extent of his role on the series had yet to be decided.

I'm really hoping that it will be ala Project Runway and not ala American Idol. Because then, I could maybe watch it.
